I thought I would start doing something "scrapbook Saturday" and found that Scrapality blog has a linky party on Saturday's! Yay! So I'm excited to join them as a weekly scrapbooking outlet for me (however they have other wonderful DIY projects they share - so check them out!)
Today I wanted to share something fun I enjoy doing so much on my scrapbooking pages. I guess you could almost call it an added love letter...that's the romantic version of thinking of it I guess. But basically it's a "pocket" of any sort on a page. In this case in the form of an envelope I usually tie with some ribbon.
Here are the 2 pages together. However, the light was playing havoc with my camera so let's get a better look:
Here is each page individually. So I would put this together in my album as one layout. But I really want to point out the page on the right. I have added my envelope "pocket" on the lower right corner. I love doing this as a way to add a personal letter to someone, or write your thoughts on the subject of the layout, or even have your child write something that you want to keep for posterity.
First you untie the ribbon. I love the interactive aspect of it this way! In this case you can see that I set up the letter in the envelope to be a wish list. Maybe a wish for the fun you have planned for the winter? Maybe a wish list for your New Year's resolutions? Or maybe to save for a wish list for next Christmas? The possibilities are up to you and I love that! You could also decorate the note with more stickers or embellishments too.
One of the best parts of scrapbooking is using endless creativity and the chance to preserve it in an album for your loved ones.
